We're currently evaluating SyncFusion and the feature for selecting data points described in the below link is an important selling point for your framework compared to others.

However, I cannot find anything in the documentation or the examples that demonstrate this. In the docs there is a section called Highlighting And Selection but it's empty. Do you have a small example that demonstrates this feature?

The example you provided does not demonstrate how to drag a rectangle selection box over a series of data points.  I think this is what the original poster was looking for, and I know this is what I am looking for... Do you have such an example?

Dear Syncfusion team,

the link to the sample is not accessible. 
However, do you offer the drag selection functionality for UWP?

Hi Dimitar, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support. 
We would like to inform you that, currently we don’t have support for drag selection functionality as like in classic chart in UWP SfChart.
